"Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when he created you, and you will be faithful to your deepest self. To depend on God sets us free from every form of enslavement and leads us to recognize our great dignity."
You were not created for a bland and mediocre existence, but for happiness!
In this apostolic exhortation on holiness, Pope Francis reminds you that being holy is an attainable goal and is, in fact, the source of your greatest joy.
In his usual pastoral and personable style, Pope Francis addresses false interpretations of holiness, provides a fresh look at the Beatitudes, and gives you practical ways to apply Jesus' words to your daily life.
Be encouraged by Pope Francis today as you respond to God's invitation to fulfill your unique mission in the world.
